in united states to shrink from our belief in universal rights. i think it's just the example we get to the rest of the world. and that example because of events in recent years and iraq and afghanistan and elsewhere, the fact that our political system is not functioning as smoothly as it might have at one point, not as smoothly as it could operate, i think we've lost a little bit of our ability to influence others in the world. we have to acknowledge that, and we have to regain that. and then they will perhaps start following some of the examples we've set forward. we are still the most successful country, i think, democracy and the world. i think we been an example to asia, an example to europe. the doctor mentioned the marshall plan. that brought europe to where it is now. and i always am amused that people say this change can't happen. look at my european friends, they are all social democrats and they all have teams in queens. so i mean, it can happen. >> okay, more questions. >> hello everybody. i am from belgium and i'm currently working for the washington quarterly. i'd like

graduates in the united states right now who are basically indentured servants because they have these brutal unforgiving loans and they don't have jobs to be able to pay them back because wages are declining, we have high entrenched unemployment, and the jobs that are coming back are low wage, insecure, poor benefit jobs. so if you took student loans -- students, who are very good at communicating on the internet, if they decided they were going to create a peaceful revolution in the ballot box, they could do so because our campaign is the one solution that's will to, number one, forgive student debt, instead of bailing out the banks again for another trillion dollars, which is what the latest quantitative easing is going to do, we could -- we could be bailing out the students with the quantitative easing, buying up the bad debt in the student securities, the student loan securities, and essentially wiping out student debt because public higher education is a public good, we provided public education through high school degree, throughout the 20th century, but in the 21st centur

will not get out of the way. the united states, of the land of opportunity has the highest corporate tax rate in the world. pushes jobs to our competitors. i agree with met ronnie m. paul bryant that we need to stop all the tax hikes -- mitt romney and paul ryan that we need to stop all the tax hikes. the president's health-care law is driving up costs. it is making it harder for small possesses to expand and hire -- businesses to expand and hire. let's rearepeal obamacare and replace it with common sense reforms that protect american access to care they need from the doctor they choose at a lower cost. we need to look at rainy and all the excess of red tape that is making it harder to work and do business. these ideas are in my job plan. republicans have common-sense proposals to remove these. president obama puts governments first. he wants to raise taxes on small businesses. he wants to keep our energy races under lock and key including the keystone xl pipeline. he wants more spending that will put us in debt to china. more of the same. where are the jobs that no wonder jobs are fleeing ov

. this is an election for president of the united states -- >> right, no, and i would agree with you on that and that's not what i'm saying so i'll stop you there if i can. i agree with you on that. i'm not saying how you look, i guess you would say how you can command and navigate a debate is, might be equally as important to the specifics of what you're saying. which is not quite how you look. >> well, but it has to do with, look, when president obama was elected, he got elected on a blank slate, or see in me what you want to see in me. then what happened was, what he saw was tax increases and growth of government, joblessness remaining high for 43 months, are big concerns. that is what people want to think about. and quite frankly, i think that if all the media will talk about in these presidential debates is how someone looked and did they have their shoulders high, et cetera, that's a glamour contest. when i talk to families they want to know what does this mean for our kids? what does this mean for us and jobs? and that's going to be the big takeaway. the substance later on, not just how someon
in the united states and how it can shift the state's rapidly over time, grace state of nevada. obama is running ahead, not nearly as far as he did in 2008. look at this data. unfortunately it is caught up in the monitor, but you can see that an incredible increase of nine percentage points in the share of eligible voters who are minorities took place according to the data between 2008 and 2012, a massive demographic tide against which the republicans have to run. you can also see that a decline of five percentage points in voters who are white non college which of course john mccain's best corporate 2008. so that is a very quick to work, very quick speed run on some of the swing states of the 2008 election. maybe it's time for the 2012 election, step back, catch my breath and to say, why is this? why is this going on? why is obama have a solid lead like he does? why is romney having such difficulty finding traction? what many people argue to be a very winnable election with up poor, limping along economy in the president who has done some legislative things that, let's face it, or not all that
in the united states are not decided by the popular vote. instead, we have the electoral votes where everybody gets another vote for the states that allocate their electrical votes will so that gives us outcomes in a number of battleground states. this is as we laid it out in the first case. we have six states in the midwest area, ohio, michigan, and ohio, states in the southwest, colorado, new mexico and nevada. virginia and florida in the south. all of the states are pretty different. the six states in the midwest are much more heavy and have a slow level of demographic change and they are more bechler changing slowly. that is favorable in showing preference for barack obama could with that in mind, let's look at some of the particular swing states that are in play. more than any other state, perhaps ohio is one of the pogroms. a state that was believed to be for mitt romney, but if obama holds all six electoral votes, he is only four electoral votes short of victory. critical romney strategy in the state of ohio. that is not happening at this point. at this point, some of the data on the bo
they have said sort of generally is that the united states, and the president in particular, shares that same goal as benjamin netanyahu does of preventing iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, and so that's sort of the official word coming from the white house to the remarks made by the prime minister yesterday. >> all right. dan lothian, thanks, dan. good to see you, as always. >>> just a handful of swing states could decide who is going to win the presidential race. polls showing president obama with a slight edge in several of those swing states. they are neck and neck with some others. paul, first of all, we've got poll numbers, and it looks like some of these swing states are very much still in play. some not so much. what do we know? >> you know, let's not talk about ohio and florida because we've talked about them so much in the last couple of days. let's talk about the other swing states. a brand new poll out in virginia has the president up by just two points. take a look at that. we factored into a cnn poll of polls. this averages all the most recent polls in virginia. we
